Difficulty Change

A few hours ago the algorithm by which the Hiveon pool sets difficulty changed. Where before difficulty would increase/decrease based on a 2 minute share count interval [minimum], it now seems to be more sensitive, adjusting every 30 seconds. Two questions:

  1. Is this the new expected behaviour?
  2. Is there any way to set difficulty, based on a server port, for example?

It seems the changes have made it even more erratic than I thought. I just watched one of my rigs get bounced down to 1.25G diff after taking 30 seconds without submitting a share at 40G diff. I can’t imagine this is intended behaviour.

Analysis of the last 24 hours worth of data has made me a fan of the change to the Hiveon vardiff algorithm.
